I married my stepbrother.

Yeah, no one’s more surprised than me. I can’t fucking stand him.

All I wanted was a quiet summer before starting college. Catch up on my books. Maybe get a summer job. Then he dropped into my life.

His name’s Gavin Caldwell, and he’s stupidly rich. Cocky. Arrogant. Ridiculously, panty-meltingly hot.

And he’s parading around our bridal suite shirtless. Pantless.

He has no freaking shame, and I have to pretend to be in love with him.

I hate him.

So why can’t I stop thinking about him?

My Thoughts - Story
Well, I finally caved and read a “step” book ---- I have been complaining and complaining about how many of these books are being generated but I will now eat my words! I freaking enjoyed this book so much!



I fucking laughed so hard at all the predicaments that Angie found herself in and the banter between her and Gavin had me cracking up…oh and I can’t forget the ‘old lady’ Joyce and her filterless mouth!


This was adorable in my eyes and a book I couldn’t put down!


The author did a kick ass job at taking a ‘taboo’ subject in my eyes and giving me an enjoying ride! ♥


Angie decides to lose her V Card and has her sights set on a tattooed god…until he opens his mouth. Just as things get hot and heavy….Angie tucks tail and runs away.


So is this the end of her embarrassing trauma?



Hell no…instead that so-called god is going to be her future step-brother. So a pair of tossed away cruise ship tickets and these two are in for a ride of their lives. Oh, and don’t forget about love and sex advice from darling, Joyce!!
